Business Research Competencies (RUSA)

The Reference User Services Association, a part of the American Library Association, developed the Business Research Competencies which provide basic business research competency areas for assessment as well as competencies in relation to specific types of business research (i.e. company research, industry research, market research, finance research, tax research, and more). These competencies were approved in 2019.

The Business Research Competencies have also been approved by the Business Reference And Services Section (BRASS) of the American Library Association.

The Business Research Competencies can be viewed from RUSA's website:
